in short a Macross RPG set around the same period as frontier but in a different corner of the galaxy following one of the colony fleets (starting at the planet it launches from and all the preparations involved with sending a colony fleet off), the 2 main sides are NUNS with which players can be human or zentradi (be it macro or micronized in the case of the latter) or one of the "uncultured" rebel zentradi fleets that are still out there, who are trying to devise a means to turn miclone culture against them in some fashion.
I'm quite interested in this as well. If you want, I could help you smooth out some of the rough edges to whatever ideas you have. Just PM me about it.

Ya know, I always thought a sort of Fallout RPG would be fun. But instead of setting it in the US, why not explore Asia or Europe? Power Armors of course would not be like the Bethesda kind but more on par with something like Mospeda and the Legioss mecha as they were meant to be.

doesn't that completely undermine the 50's theme that is central to fallout though?

Can we get more general theme? I don't think other people myself included really know about FMP, Mospeda or Fallout. So instead of going deeper into smaller segment why don't we make it more general. I'm into more popular stuff like another Gundam or Code Geass. :oops:

Just because it's not something you like doesn't make it not popular. I've never seen an episode of Code Geass, but I know several people who've played through every Fallout game. For that matter, I've seen pretty much every Macross created.

And, btw, if you don't like the options presented, you can always present your own. Or if you don't like an option, just don't vote for it when the time comes.
Yep...That's Texas in a nutshell. Why just say "f**k you" when you can put it on a flag?

If it was up to me i wouldn't even let you guys talk about stuff that wasn't UC or G gundam!

HA HA :mrgreen:

I had thoughts about a year ago about making a mecha rpg set in a post apocalyptic world. (Original I know) The mecha wouldn't be very big, and would actually be pretty hodge podge made out of anything the surviving people could get their hands on. There would of been other vehicles too. I dunno it was pretty much madmax but with like votoms sized mechas.

Thats about all I got not much of a storyline from what i remember but i thought the idea would be cool! 8)

Hey Imperial (or anybody else), are you working on an idea for a Turn-A game? Official submissions start later this week and since there seems to be a little interest, if nobody is putting together a CC idea I was thinking about writing up a short proposal. It'll be like the other one I posted in that I will by no means GM it though, so somebody will have to volunteer.

I will say beforehand that I've only seen 2 episodes of Turn-A so if there's someone here that can do it better, please do so by all means.

Not really when they scaled down the size of the power armors in the later games. If you look up the early games they're about the scale of Mospeda armor, and I didn't mean to literally inject Legioss and stuff, but to have the armor be more the 'tank supplement/replacement' that it was and not just a suit of armor.

And those of you that are unfamiliar with Fallout, think retro-futurism taken literally and the Cuban missile crisis happened in 2077. Laser guns, rifles, portable nukes..\

can't wait to see what's up to vote for...I like the aliens story and would like to see how the dungeon master style game would work out.
As for a Macross/robotech RPG, I think the "malcontent uprising" era from the manga would better fit in an rpg.

Alright folks, submission time has officially begun.

As it's mentioned in the rules, what you have to do to officially submit the RPG is PM it to me inside the Code tags. Anything that you want to appear in the poll needs to be inside those tags, as I'll be coping and pasting those into the poll thread. If for some reason you need or want to resend your idea, like you had typos or something, please make it clear in the PM subject or outside the Code tags that you're sending a new version, as I'll delete the old one. As always, I'll be posting a list of people who send ideas to me. At first that'll just be edited into this post, but later on I'll make new posts for that so everyone knows what's what. If you need an idea on how your submission should look, just check the previous RPG polls.

The deadline for submissions to be in my Inbox is 11:59 PM EST this Monday (June 28th). At that time, this thread gets locked and I'll be starting the poll with the submissions that have been sent to me.

Also, please note that I assume whoever sends me the submission is going to be the GM for that RPG, should it be selected. If you wish to submit an idea, but have no interest in being the GM, please clearly say so in the PM (It can be in the subject or outside the Code tags or wherever).

That covers everything I can think of. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

Just so everyone knows, I've gotten PMs from the following people.

Fritz Ashlyn
Attomoku

Those of you who haven't sent me your PM yet still have about a day and a half, and I may end up extending the deadline a day or so depending on how many I've gotten by tomorrow. So those who are going to send something, please do so, and those who like other peoples' ideas, start bugging them to do so. :mrgreen:

Hi there,

I actually never mentioned "I like" in that post. Just that I know because it's well.. popular. I mean it's everywhere even if you don't watch it u know it's there from tv ads, magazine, manga brocures, etcetera. It's different from Mospeda/ Fallout. Even today I don't think I could find a friend of mine who know about them. Not so with HALO, even I who never play it and don't even own a console know about the game.

I guess I'm trying to remind you guys that you'll have a hard time finding more ppl who wanted to play about stuff they hardly know about.

LOL, thanks for the advice tho. I don't think I want to be a GM. Playing one RPG is fun, playing two is a burden, and being a GM is probably like a part-time-job. I rather have not. :oops:

:lol:

Anyway, I'm going to extend the deadline another 24 hours in the hopes that we can get another idea or two to better round out the poll. So the new deadline to get in any submissions is 11:59 PM EST Tuesday, June 29th. After that, the poll will go up and likely run till Saturday or Sunday, depending on how close it is.

Probably too late to discuss this, and I'm not sure if it would work, but...a Gurren Lagann RPG? No idea what the story would be, just pitching a basic idea.
